Love is beautiful: valentines gift ideas

I love valentines day. Not for any romantic reasons, but to me it signifies that we are halfway through February and winter is coming to a close. Phew.
However, if you are looking forward to V day for more obvious reasons, I've put my thinking hat on for what you can spoil your loved one with.
Choosing a new perfume of aftershave can be a minefield and an expensive mistake if you get it wrong. So listen out for hints or check out what is in that nearly empty bottle on the dressing table. Boots has currently got £5 off all fragrances over £45 if you use the code: LOVEBOOTS at the online checkout. I'd feel totally spoilt to receive a bottle of Coco Mademoiselle come the 14th. (£45/35ml)

Why not go for the effort option, run a luscious bubble bath, light some candles and pour your other half a glass of their favourite tipple and let them chill out. You'll earn some serious brownie points. My current fav product to soak in is N-Spa's Raspberry Milkshake Shower and Bath Gel available exclusively at Asda and is a snip at £1.25/100ml. (with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc please....!)
Following on in the relaxation theme, why not indulge your valentine to a gorgeous spa treatment. I love massages, but as I can never justify booking one for myself, they are the ultimate treat. Saks Hair and Beauty offer a back massage and mini facial as their 'Saks Boost' £50 and a range of treatments for your man at professional salons nation wide.

So how am I going to be spoiling Mr blogmebeautiful? I think I might be following legendary baker, Bakerella and rustling up some of her Cupid's arrow cupcakes. Yum!

And here are my efforts:
